#CrimeTimeTuesday Law Enforcement Agencies Collaborate and Man is Sentenced to LWOP for 2010 Home Invasion Murders

#LASD, @HawthornePD, and @LAPDHQ investigated the brutal murders and home robberies of Hanna Marcos, Denice Roberts, and Leamon & Robyn Turnage between September 2010 and October 2010.  

John Wesley Ewell, a 62 year-old man pled no contest to four counts of first-degree murder and four counts of first-degree residential robbery in a negotiated plea agreement, which included admitting special circumstance allegation of murder during a residential robbery.  He was sentenced to life in state prison without the possibility of parole.    

September 24, 2010, Suspect Ewell broke into the Hawthorne home of 80 year-old Hanna Marcos.  Before he robbed her home, Ewell choked and hit Ms. Marcos causing her to have a heart attack resulting in her death.  

October 13, 2010, Ewell broke into, 53 year-old, Denice Roberts Los Angeles home and strangled her to death during the robbery.  

October 22, 2010, Ewell broke into the Hawthorne home of 69 year-old Leamon Turnage, and his 57 year-old wife, Robyn.  He robbed their house and then killed the couple by hitting and strangling them.  They were found bound.  

Detectives conducted an intensive investigation and doggedly followed all leads and John Wesley Ewell was taken into custody without incident.  Thanks to the combined effort and teamwork of the involved agencies, this dangerous suspect will no longer be able to violently victimize innocent members of society.

Additional Information and Links

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Foundation assists local law enforcement.

This volunteer organization was formed in 1984 by local citizens to assist local law enforcement in a tangible way, purchasing equipment and crime prevention materials, as well as raising funds to help the Civilian Volunteer, Law Enforcement Explorer, and Reserve Deputy Programs at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

Our Sheriff’s Explorer Program has created a volunteer partnership between youths in our community and law enforcement. The explorers, between 15 and 21 years of age, receive extensive training in an academy setting.

They then participate in community affairs and non-hazardous law enforcement activities. The explorer program is great for those youth considering a future career in law enforcement or those who just want to get involved and help out.

If you are interested in working as a Sheriff’s Explorer, please fill out the Deputy Sheriff Explorer Interest Form, or at the bottom of this page or contact Deputy Fanny Lapkin of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station at (661) 255-1121 x5160. Those who are interested in the Sheriff’s Explorer program, but do not wish to apply for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, should print the Interest Form and apply to the LA County Sheriff’s station of their preference.

Mission Statement/About Us

In 2010 nationwide trends and local concerns prompted officials from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station in partner with the City of Santa Clarita and the County of Los Angeles to conduct a thorough assessment into the scope of the narcotic epidemic in the Santa Clarita Valley. To address this issue The Santa Clarita Sheriff Station and the city of Santa Clarita developed and implemented the J-TEAM.

The J-Team was formed to direct concentrated attention at both juvenile and adult narcotic addiction and its primary function is to address the growing narcotic problem through education, Intervention, and Enforcement. The J-Teams approach is multi-directional, considering both the addict and their families, including detox, counseling, IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program), Residential or rehab in other states.
